Here at A Watch to Remember I want to create a place where people who are interested in watches can get some information on current watch trends and styles. I love watches, a lot, and have owned a few watches in my day of various styles and movements. I think a watch is an extension of oneself and helps others to identify your personality, mood, and fashion sense.
Since there are so many choices and options to choose from. Hopefully this website can help guide you in your hunt for the perfect watch and keep you up to date on all the latest designs and options for all watch types.
Nicks’ First Watch
Everyone has that first watch that really sticks out to them, a watch to remember and never forget. The watch that lights the fire within them, that burns into a glowing appreciation and fascination with the mechanics, quality, styles, and beauty of these incredible timekeepers.
The watch that got me to fall in love and start collecting them was the Seiko Coutura SSG010. I had owned watches prior to this one but did not have a real appreciation for them. Around the time of purchase, I had just started working as a life insurance agent (terrible experience) and was told by my colleagues to invest in a watch for aesthetic purposes. As an insurance agent, you have to look the part apparently.
I didn’t feel like dropping a lot of cash on a new watch and realizing that my credit card reward points had been adding up for quite some time I figured I would check out their selection and see if I could find a decent men’s dress watch. During my search I was unimpressed with a majority of the selection. I had to keep climbing the points ladder when at last I hit my limit (somewhere between 100-120,000) in points and only one watch was in this point range.
This solar powered Seiko watch caught my eye and looked impressive. Not knowing much about specifications at the time, I relied mostly on online reviews. From what I read and saw, it seemed like a great choice and a beautiful well-crafted timepiece overall. So I put my order in, and saw my points drop down to nearly zero.
When the watch arrived, I was blown away. The highly polished bracelet and case with the beautiful dial and sapphire crystal really made this watch shine. This watch also came with a bunch of special functions and learning more about them made me curious to see what other types of watches were out there. So began my new hobby of watch collecting and general love of all things watches.
A Better Guide To Watches
This Seiko watch is still in my collection today and not the only Seiko watch I own for that matter. I will always remember how this timepiece started my obsession with watches. I want to help you find your perfect watch as well. Be it the start of your collection or the 8th addition to your timekeeper family.
It can be a daunting task of finding the right watch to fit your lifestyle. Do you ever go diving? Are you looking for something that can withstand the elements?
